Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"It makes a great "refresher" for licensed professionals. For beginners/new students, it is easy to follow and understand even without prior knowledge of the subject. Contains material that is important to the esthetician, does not contain useless material that does not pertain to the topic."

"Many topics covered to help give a broad perspective for understanding how acne forms, is treated, and is cared for long term. This gives the esthetician the reference to fall back upon as s/he builds their career and helps those with acne."

"Excellent discussion on the external factors that affect breakout activity in the Environmental Factors chapter. Updated and relevant information regarding essential fatty acids in the Dietary Factors chapter. The Cosmetic Factors chapter goes into excellent detail and provides specific ingredients lists."
